SERIES I, CHAPTER II

From day one, our vehicles have helped map the world, discovering territories no one knew existed. Land Rover Reborn gives you the chance to own one of our original explorers – a fully-restored Land Rover Series I.

We’re going above and beyond to restore original Series Is, handpicked from across the globe for their authenticity. Each classic comes with a 12-month warranty – and a lifetime of history.

DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

No Series I is the same – each has lived a different life, in a different part of the world. Reborn ensures that this is no ordinary restoration – whether it’s an 80” or 86” model, we retain each vehicle’s authenticity and uniqueness.

EXAMINATION

Before we begin any work, we take each individual vehicle through an in-depth examination, uncovering exactly what needs to be restored – performing a physical check against the original build specifications.

BODY PREPARATION

Next, we dismantle the vehicle and restore its panels. Again, in order to preserve its unique personality, the panels are painted by the Land Rover Classic approved Bodyshop, in the five original period colours – Light Green, Bronze Green, Royal Air Force Blue, Dove Grey and Poppy Red.

EXTERIOR

We strip, refinish and retain as many original parts as possible, renewing them only when absolutely necessary. Reborn aims to continue the Series I’s story, not rewrite it.

INTERIOR

We then take a look at the Series I’s interior, stripping back the seats to their bare frames, and re-covering them in the customer’s choice of period material.

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

We strip and rebuild each Series I engine at our Power Train Department. Once its legendary heart is beating again, our 12-month or 12,000-mile manufacturer warranty ensures it will keep going for a long time to come.

FIXINGS AND FINISHES

It’s important to retain each vehicle’s authenticity and character, even in the littlest of details. With this in mind, we ensure all components are refinished to the vehicle’s original cosmetic specification. Once our work has ended, Series I’s next chapter begins…
